This book has lots of underage sex in it. I couldn't handle it. After the lead vampire admitted to having a three way with Naomi, some under-aged, servant girl, I just stopped. I just can't do underage sex.
Formatting? What's up? There are no paragraph indents for the first 1/4 of the book then they suddenly the indents appear in the middle of a chapter. Then, for good measure, the indents disappear again randomly around 50%. Also, the author used internet style formatting, where there's a space between each paragraph. It's cheap becaues it makes the book appear longer than it actually is. Also, it's pretty odd to read it in that style.
Onto the book itself. It's pretty unbelievable, but then again it's urban fantasy so it's supposed to be unbelievable. The main character, Two (horrible name for a protag btw. Every time her name started a sentence I thought it was the number, not the person. For example: Two went out that night. Two what? Vampires? Children? Chair legs? Oh wait, Two is a name. Really difficult to read when your main character is also a common word.)
So Two is in a whore house in NYC. For all cliches, she's also an orphan so it's no big deal when she starts being a whore. She's got no family, no friends, no siblings, no reason to live except heroin. Oh, btw she's also in the top tier of whores, so she's really desired. Orphaned, drop dead beautiful, doesn't even realize it. Cliches all around.
So one day this guy requests Two by her hooker name, Ashley. He asks her to wear these "weird clothes" (they weren't really that weird) and the whole request is supposed to be mysterious, I guess. This dude picks her up in a crazy fancy car then takes her to a super awesome dinner then drives her out of NYC to a town somewhere in Jersey I guess. If you drive a pimp's top tier girl out of town, aren't you going to get sniped or something? I don't know the rules of whore houses but this didn't seem real to me.
Anyway, the guy calls her by her slightly derogatory numerical name, and that's all it takes for Two to instantly feel love. Which she claims she's never felt before. All of a sudden she wants to get it on with this young attractive guy who magically knows her real name - and not because he paid for her either. Truly, she wants to bang him because she loves him. Five minutes after driving in his car. Okay, thirty if you count the dinner. It's an insta-relationship (just add water!)
The guy claims he can set her free and she agrees to his offer, not really understanding his offer. But the "you're free" part sounds nice. So she accepts his offer, partially because he sounds convincing, partially because he's hot, but not because she understands what he's saying. So then they do the dirty on a hilltop in Jersey and he bites her on the neck. I think vampire attraction takes over and she climaxes and dies all in the same moment. Then the book is over.
Just kidding. Long story short, she "falls in love" with the vampire after meeting him for two hours. She wants to be with him for all of vampire eternity (I've been with my man for four years and still don't know if I want to commit to a human lifespan.)
So...stuff happens. I can't really even describe what. It's a slow paced book after that point without a lot of tension. Well, there's tension but I found it fake. The typical "I don't want to be a vampire" and "Am I really human?" stuff comes up.
Truthfully, at this point the main character, Two, came off as weak and pretty flat. She was more interesting when she lived in the whore house. The male vampire that turned her basically took over the novel without the author realizing it. The male vampire dictated all of Two's actions from that point. "Tonight is not a good night for you to take revenge against your pimp." And Two would bat her pretty eyes and say, "Ok." She would've been much more interesting if she said, "Screw that I do want I want." Instead, she became a timid little girl who said "ok" to everything her lover demanded. Either way, at this point, the main character became painfully boring.
Oh well. The story never went that way and I never finished the book. Pretty cliche, pretty predictable, and a fairly weak MC. I'm kind of surprised this book has so many five stars but to each their own. At least the writing was solid. It's the plotting and character development that was awful. And the underage sex. Please stop banging teens. It's gross.
